Simply Wonderful

By Andy & Ruth Cooke on 07-Sep-2022

We have stayed in many different holiday homes over the years in France and the description for L' Ancienne Ecole doesn't do the property justice. The quality of the property, garden and the equipment available to us as visitors was of very good standard. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday and we were not disappointed. The weather during our stay was warm / hot and sunny so many enjoyable hours were spent at the pool. The view from the pool area is amazing and yet it is private and not overlooked. The Courtyard and BBQ area is also so practical, which meant we were able to cook outside every day. Would we recommend this property - absolutely and not only for the property itself but also for the booking process and communication which Janet made very easy. Thank you for having us and we look forward to returning again in the future.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We are so pleased you had such an enjoyable holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back to l’Ancienne École in future.

Just perfect!

We all enjoyed our second holiday at this extremely comfortable and well-equipped home. Our thanks to owners Janet and Mike for the thoughtful welcoming touches. The house was just as we remembered it apart from the newly updated kitchen, containing everything we needed. A great place to unwind and visit the surrounding area. The outdoor covered seating area, pool and boules court were all in high demand. Relaxing with a glass of wine and enjoying the views was just perfect.

We absolutely adore this place.

This was our 2nd visit and we had such an amazing holiday. There were 7 of us and we found the house suited all our needs. The peace and tranquility never disappoint and the sky, so much sky and so many stars!! It was very hot and we didn't get a drop of rain until the day we left. The owners are so lovely and very quick to answer any of our questions. The village is beautiful and we really enjoyed the pool and garden. We can't wait to return, we have already booked again for next year.
